Robinson, Berry top prospects for Hall call

Retired

--Safety Johnny Robinson: The 1960s Chiefs have put several players in the Hall of Fame and Robinson stands as the best left out. Robinson earned four All-Pro nominations and earned nine all-star game or Pro Bowl appearances. He earned a place at safety on the All-Time AFL team and the Chiefs added him to their ring of honor in 1974. He won a Super Bowl ring with the 1969 Chiefs. A fan-organized campaign is pushing for Robinson's induction into the Hall.

Still playing

--Safety Eric Berry: Without three seasons lost to injuries and cancer Berry would appear a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame, but the 29-year-old safety still has time to expand his impressive resume. Berry has earned first-team All-Pro honors three times thus far and has five Pro Bowl nods. His stats make a case by themselves, Berry's courageous fight against cancer earns another level of respect. If the Chiefs can add a Super Bowl title to his resume, that should clinch a spot for Berry in Canton.
